• PlowSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again PlowSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of PlowSite will experience a major upgrade next week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue.

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit PlowSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow PlowSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, PlowSite Team

looking for advice

I had a ford exporer with a western 6.5 unimount plow which seemed to work pretty good other then blowing out the 4wd system. does anyone have any sugestions for a vehicle type, equipment (plow package) etc. I'm looking to continue doing local residential driveways only. I noticed today a ford excursion with a plow. anyone tried an expedition or excursion??

An Excursion is based on the SuperDuty series and as such is the best SUV for snow removal.

It seems like you're limiting your options to a SUV.

My choice might be a Crew-Cab F-350 w/ a 6' bed.

I've heard S10 Blazers and Jeep Cherokee's/Wranglers are good for plowing residentials. I do a few with my truck, but I've found that the longer the truck, the harder it is to maneuver in and out of driveways. Stick with something small if you're gonna do driveways only...

My 1/2 ton ram extra cab plows better than my 1ton gm. Turns on dime and i believe it's the only 1/2 ton that has a plow prep package.
